Please use the Ctrl + F Function by copying what's in the parenthesis

the game or the instruction booklet.  The stuff contained in
brackets is from me, and the rest is from the game or the manual.


120 years ago, in preparation for the coming doom, mankind began an
exodus to the manmade satellites in outer space.  But the "Day of
Judgment" arrived even before half the population had escaped to
space.  The shift in the tectonic plate caused the shape of the
Pacific Ocean to change and a new continent was created.

After a 100 years, the only inhabitable area were limited to the area
around the new Pacific Ocean and the new continent.  New nations were
founded on this continent and mankind began rebuilding their lives.
In the midst of rebuilding, "Gaiathyst" a mineral which releases an
energy similar to gravity was discovered as a new source of endless

The nations began to war with each other for domination, but
conventional weapons were found useless due to the influence of the
Gaiathyst.  To fight under these conditions, the power suits used to
mine Gaiathyst were improved for combat.  But the "Gaiathyst War"
came to an abrupt end by the invading forces of the Zodgierra Empire
from outer space.

After conquering the nations, Emperor ZORR creates the "SAP", a
super gravity producing device.  Orbiting over the new continent,
the super gravity of the device, prohibits beings not wearing a
power suit to exist under it.  Protected by the super gravity, ZORR
commands his empire from a tower under the SAP.

A few brave make a stand to defeat ZORR.  They are the true Heroes!

------Move List------@4

[Guide: Some of the moves listed here are taken from the instruction
booklet.  The others that I found out myself are enclosed in
brackets.  Please excuse the simple and/or corny names for the
different moves (the ones I found as well as the ones listed in the
instruction booklet).  Keep in mind that out of all the moves I've
listed here, there might be some I don't know about.  Even the
instruction booklet says, "There are millions of moves and Combos
not shown in the Instruction Manual.  Please experiment with the
different Heroes."  Also, keep in mind that what I consider a "basic
combo" are the moves a character can do before briefly pausing or
stopping (i.e. "Punch, Punch, pause, Kick, Kick" is not a basic
combo in my opinion).  The moves I have listed here consist of BASIC
moves and combos.  Some combos can be strung together, but for
simplicity's sake, I only listed basic moves and combos in
this move list.

Also, all the moves listed here are assuming the player is standing
on the left facing an opponent to his/her right.

gamefaqs.  By pressing down on the Control Stick, you lower the

characters unlocked.]

[Before the days of online multiplayer, we had games like Dual

Backstory: A game maniac who's well versed in all genre of video
games.  He is a dirty fighter who will analyze his opponent at the
beginning of the fight, and then towards the end he will
deliberately attack his opponent's weaknesses.

Backstory: A training robot developed to train the fighters.  It has
a special AI chip which gives it the capability to mimic and learn
the moves of the one who fights against it.  But it still needs
to be trained.

------Robot Mode------@7

[Selecting this mode lets you train the Robot.]

---Training Rate---
This shows which Hero the Robot can play with.  THe graph will be
longer for the Heroes which the Robot can better control.  The
better the Robot is with a particular Hero the color of the graph
will also change from Yellow to Orange to Green [Yellow being the
worst and Green being the best].

---Fighting Style Bar---
The bar shows the fighting style of the Robot in 6 different colors.
The wider the bar, the more the Robot uses that style.

---How to Train the Robot---
The Robot will control the same Hero the Player chooses.  When the
Player makes a move, the Robot will learn that move.  If the Player
defends, the Robot will learn to defend and if the Player throws,
the Robot will learn to throw.  What the Robot learned will be
displayed in 6 different colors in the Fighting Style Bar in the
middle of the screen.  Let's teach the Robot all sorts of different
moves.  Even if the Robot learns to punch using the Hero GAI, the
Robot will not learn to punch using the Hero GUN.  In order to teach
the Robot to punch using the Hero GUN, you must train it with the
Hero GUN and same for any other Hero.  How well the Robot is
trained for each Hero will be displayed in the Training Rate graph.

------Medal Mode------@8

---See the Medals---
Up to 6 Medals can be displayed in 1 screen.  There are a total of
5 Medal display pages and a total of 30 Medals can be recorded.
When you receive over 30 Medals, follow the instructions displayed
on the screen and delete an unwanted Medal.

---Gold Medal---
When The Medal rank becomes 20 and over, the Medal will become a
Gold Medal.  When both Medals which were bet in VS 2P MODE are rank
19, the winners Medal will become a Gold Medal.

---Deleting Medals---
When the A Button is pressed while in the MEDAL MODE a [] will
appear around a Medal.  Move the [] to the Medal you wish to delete
and press the A Button to decide.  Select "Yes" and press the A
Button and the Medal will be deleted.

[Medal Mode, to me, seems like an early attempt at the
"Achievements" games have nowadays.  They don't really do anything,
but I guess it's nice to have them so you can bet them against your
friends when you play them.  I don't have any "Gold Medals", so I
don't really know if they do anything that the normal medals don't
do, but I'm pretty sure they're just there for show as well.]

------Brief Strategy Guide------@9

[Here's a brief strategy guide I came up with while playing story
mode on hard.  Here are some tips on how to beat each of
the fighters:

GAI: GAI is no cakewalk.  He combos you very often and defends when
you try to retaliate.  Press your attack and eventually you'll find
an opening.  Just be careful not to leave yourself open or else GAI
will kick your butt.

GUN: GUN is pretty strong so try to avoid getting hit by him.  He
doesn't defend too much, but he does attack a lot.  Fortunately he
is slow so you can use this to your advantage by finding an opening
and exploiting it.

HANA: HANA is very fast.  She likes to keep attacking you, leaving
you with no room to breathe.  Defend well, keep your distance if
possible, and wait for a chance to start punishing her.

HOE: HOE's combos can be deadly.  Defend yourself and don't get
cornered.  Attack him when he's open and, if possible, use the stage
to your advantage.

JUIE: JUIE is fast and he attacks a lot.  His defense is pretty good
too, but if you just keep pressing your attack you should
overwhelm him.

RETSU: RETSU likes to move around a lot.  Keep attacking him and he
shouldn't do much to defend himself.  Don't let him start combo-ing
you since he can do some pretty nasty 9-10 hit combos if you let him.

KUMO: KUMO defends by keeping a slight distance from you, and then
combo-ing when she gets the chance.  Try to keep up your attack and
you should do fine against her.

ZEN: ZEN will keep a slight distance away from you and block until
there is a break in your attacks.  Then he will come in with some
combos of his own.  Try to press your attack as much as possible
and defend when necessary.

RAY: RAY's stage is quite maneuverable, so the falling off the edge
shouldn't be too much of a problem.  RAY blocks quite a bit and
combos you pretty well when you are open which makes her pretty
challenging.  Try to knock her off the edge for an easier KO.

GYN: GYN's stage is the same as RAY's so the same strategies apply.
GYN is pretty well balanced.  He'll try to go into Lethal Change
Mode if you get too far from him so use this as an opportunity to
use your character's running attack.  Knocking him off the edge is
the easiest way to defeat him since he is pretty tough.

ZORR: ZORR's stage is big and it has a wall.  This leaves no room
for cheap KO's or deaths which is good for you yet bad for you since
ZORR is very strong.  His attacks pack a punch - especially his grab
moves.  Your best bet is to stay away and let him try to go into
Lethal Change Mode.  You can then do a running attack and back away.
Just repeat this as many times as you can and you should win the
fight fairly easily.

GEZORR: GEZORR blocks A LOT so finding an opening won't be easy.
But, like ZORR, he does try to go into Lethal Change Mode when
you're far away.  Do the same thing you did with ZORR and he
shouldn't be too much of a problem.  However, should he happen to
enter Lethal Change Mode, watch out!  Like RETSU, he becomes
invisible, and, since he attacks and blocks a lot, things could get
ugly for you.  Try to rely on your character to tell you where he
is.  If you think he's close, it might be best to try to get away.
If you're not sure where he is, press Z to get your character to
face him.  If you can, retaliate by going into Lethal Change Mode
yourself and using your Special Moves.]

------Game Ending------@10

At last ZORR and the Zodgierra Empire is defeated.  But what caused
ZORR to transform into GEZORR?  Was it some evil power instilled
within the Gaiathyst?  If so, what will happen to me?  I must find
the answer.  Until then, my battle is not truly over.

[Yeah, I admit, the ending is pretty lame.  What's worse is that's
the SAME ending for all of the characters.  It'd be nice if they'd
have put a little more effort into that and at least had some
different text.  Ah well.  I still think the game is awesome - in
some weird way.  I know it's received a lot of criticism and not
many people like it, but there's just something about it that I
find fun.  I really think it's a good game.  Anyway, that's it.]


[As for codes on how to get the secret characters and extra Virtual
Arcade personalities, the tips found in the cheat section here on
gamefaqs work just fine so I won't reiterate them here.  I will,
however, say that I don't think you can unlock ZORR in this game.
I did what it said in the cheat section and nothing happened.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure you can't unlock him because when you look
in the Robot Mode, there isn't any space for his name among the
list of Heroes.  I'd just thought I'd mention that here.

Well there you have it.  After over 10 years there is finally a
guide up for Dual Heroes.  I never thought I'D be the one to create
it though.  I wouldn't be surprised if nobody ever read this thing,
but oh well.  I know there are a few fans of this game out there.
I hope all 3 of you will appreciate this guide.  Anyway, if any of
you 3 have any questions or comments about this FAQ you can go ahead
and e-mail me.  I don't know if I plan to update this FAQ at all,
but you can still go ahead and share some of the things I left out
with me.  If I decide to add what you told me I'll be sure to give
you credit for it of course.  Ok, well, my e-mail address is teague
kidd at hotmail dot com.  All of that together of course.]
